Google SketchUp Pro is a suite of powerful features and applications for design and engineering
professionals. It includes SketchUp Pro 8, LayOut 3, Style Builder and more.
Google SketchUp Pro is 3D modeling software for professionals. SketchUp is easy and intuitive,
allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, designers can make more
informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to
reach a common goal.
LayOut 3 :
LayOut is the 2D companion to SketchUp Pro. Create professional design documents, dimensioned
drawings and presentations from your 3D models, to communicate your ideas to clients and partners.
Revise your model in SketchUp Pro and the changes are updated automatically in LayOut.
Style Builder :
We put the Sketch back in SketchUp.
Only Google SketchUp Pro includes Style Builder, a tool for creating one-of-a-kind, sketchy-edge
Styles for your SketchUp models.
Turn hard-lined computer drawings into approachable sketches :
Help your audience see the big picture by removing just the right amount of detail from your drawings.
Hand-drawn sketches add nuance and personality to a concept, which can help to convey meaning or
set the tone for an idea.
Make your models and drawings a part of your visual brand :
When you create a custom Style and apply it to your SketchUp model, no one else in the world is able
to make models that look like yours. Your models and drawings will be totally unique.
Turn any stroke into a custom Style :
Scan in, photograph or draw the strokes you want to use. Sketchy-edge Styles can be based on
anything : wavy pencil lines, quick pen strokes, marks from a fat stick of graphite. If you can see it,
you can turn it into a Style.
Features of SketchUp Pro 8 :
Create 3D Models
Using SketchUp Pro, you can create 3D models, either by starting from scratch or by using existing data.
CAD plans, photos, aerial imagery and other information, then use the modeling tools in SketchUp Pro to
develop your ideas into 3D.
Add data to your model
Within SketchUp Pro, you have the ability to add attributes to your model with Dynamic Components.
At any point, create a report summarizing the attribute data in your model. Use these reports to extract
quantities and take-offs throughout the evolution of your model.
Export and Share
Some projects require the use of traditional CAD applications or renderering applications to develop
construction drawings, photo-realistic images or to share information. SketchUp Pro can export your 3D
model in a number of 2D and 3D formats for use with other applications.
Present and Document
For many of your projects, SketchUp Pro, which includes LayOut, is all you will need. LayOut is the 2D
companion to SketchUp Pro for creating deliverables like permit and construction drawings, presentation
documents and full-screen digital presentations.
